Chicago, IL: Standout member Belo of Do or Die is putting the finishing
touches on his dynamic, debut album THE TRUTH, due to
arrive in stores this October 17th on The Legion Records’
label. Belo has the streets anxiously awaiting his solo
album. He is the first member from Do or Die to release a solo

“What makes Belo’s project so provoking is that
his style is very unique within the group and within the
industry,” says Rudy Acosta, owner of The Legion
Records. “For him to be the first one of the group to come
out with a solo album, it’s exciting to see the direction
he’s taking. He’s got that smooth, pimp feel, but he

Belo spits straight street on “Outlaws”
and addresses issues he has with religious misdirection, the terrorist
attacks on America, the war in Iraq and the American government on the
searing “God’s Wrath.” Belo gives fans the
classic Do or Die sound Belo helped define too. One such tune is
sexy lead single “So Exclusive,” which features the
soulful vocals of Johnny P, the sensuous production work of The
Legendary Traxster and showcases Belo rapping about having an
exclusive woman.
